several u.s. lawmakers suggesting bp was involved in, get, this securing the release of a man who blew up a passenger jet over lockerbie; in fact bp officials did tell the british government they were concerned how long it was taking to release the so-called lockerbie bomber. that's according to a bp spokesman. you may remember last year when scotland released a convicted terrorist on compassion grounds after a doctor said he only had a short time to live. well, is he still very much alive. doctors treating him in libya say he could survive for many years you may remember he killed nearly 200 americans in 1988. today a bp spokesman said company officials spoke with the government because as the spokesman put it,. spokesman claims bp was not involved in the release. senators from new york and new jersey are apparently not satisfied with that explanation. the british government turned down their request to investigate al megrahi's release. one of the senators, the democrat frank lautenberg from new jersey wrote in a letter to the committee: as you may know, after they pushed for the release
some of the money to groups promoting the bill. it's illegal under the u.s. la for the government to lobby for or against abortion in foreign countries. >> back here at home, the spokesman confirmed that the new federal regulations will require healthcare providers to have technology enabling them to calculate a person body mass index. which is used to determine obesity. b.m.i. is a relationship between height and weight and the stimulus package requires providers to have the height and weight information stored electronically and available on new exchange. new test results are in for the temporary fix of the well cap in the gulf. officials say it's good news, worries still persist over potential leaks. correspondent william la jeunesse is here with an update. good evening. >> since capping the well, they expected increase in pressure from methane. they expected the 2500 pounds per square inch, they got 6700. so while there is no evidence of a leak, there is ambiguity of the finding. what does it mean for the gulf? more uncertainty. >> until it's stopped permanently, i have no tru
-military spending in to that bill. the u.s. trade deficit widened by 4.8% in may to $42.3 billion. that's the highest level in 18 months. job openings dropped in may to $3.3 million to $3.2 million. layoffs were up slightly. wall street hot streak continued today. dow gained 146 3/4. s&p 500 added more than 16 1/2. the nasdaq was up 43 2/3. federal judge in new york cleared for trial the first guantanamo bay detainee to be prosecuted in a civilian court. the judge ruled that galahni's five-year detention and two-year interrogation were not grounds for dismissal. the mental image many people have of the guantanamo bay facility is probably pretty grim. national correspondent catherine herridge shows us tonight reality is quite different. >> detainee dumping the dirt is actually gardening. for the 181 detainees remaining at guantanamo bay, the quality of life is apparently improving. playstation, board games, nintendo, there are more ways than ever to pass the time. popular titles in the library include harry potter and "twilight" a series about teen angst and vampires. by contrast, convic
illegal immigration. the u.s. justice department has, indeed, filed a lawsuit that challenges the state of arizona's tough new immigration law. the measure set to go into effect later this month. the law requires local police to question possible illegal immigrants and also makes it a crime for legal immigrants not to carry their documents. the obama administration argues federal law trumps the state law. the president himself called this plan misguided and one senior justice department official said today that allowing it opens the door for a patchwork of immigration laws across the country. we think that is untenable. but supporters say they need this law because they claim the feds haven't done enough to stop illegal immigration. the arizona governor jan brewer who signed this bill into law released a statement that reads, in part, today's filing is nothing more than a massive waste of taxpayer funds. these funds could be better used against the violent mexican cartels than the people of arizona. anita vogel on fox top story in our northwest newsroom. strong reaction from arizona law

to these documents as being rather low level classified information that any number of u.s. service members could have access to, but it's obviously something that the pentagon is quite concerned about, that this has now been made public for people all over the world to see, shannon. shannon: with that in mind, mike, what are we hearing from wickileaks about this massive release of classified information, any hint that we should expect more to come? >> reporter: the founder did say, shannon, they have about 15,000 other documents that they have not yet released and he predicted that there would be more leaks to come as well. so all indications are that he is waiting for the right opportunity to get maximum media exposure. it's quite clear that this guy is clearly antiwar and trying to undermine support for the war and a lot of the key countries' contributing troops to the afghan effort. here's more from the wickileaks founder earlier today. >> the coverup, all sorts of crimes, begins at the bottom and moves its way to the top so it is quite hard to enact a new policy and have it filtered down to

, but that equals higher interest rates, and will equal higher inflation and weak u.s. dollar and that will be the recipe for a double dip recession in my mind. >> adam, i know that you have been somewhat of a fan of spending and feels like desperation in and around the obama camp, will they be able to get it through? >> well, i don't know, charles, i don't know if it is desperation, it is certainly frustration, you know and i did not get my college degree in economics, i also didn't get it at a baking school. i understand why he got a little bit upset, that is not neil's normal fare, but, look, the most important point here, i don't know if it is this right time for more spending, it's not the time for austerity, at least the guy -- his position is intellectually defensible. >> it is. >> need to be sure -- yes. we need to make sure we don't do what happened in the depression. cut off the spending, at the wrong time, and, send things going down again, that is what he's saying, i don't know if he's right but it is not crazy to say that. >> i have to tell you, i can see the unio
, the u.s. justice department filing a lawsuit against arizona immigration law. allows police to stop someone to check their immigration status and makes it a crime for legal immigrants not to carry their documents. you know, every time this law gets described and sometimes we're guilty of it here on fox, it's always a tough new immigration law. how are the politics of this affecting the coverage? >> well, i think the media are pretty much against the state of arizona on this. but i think most interesting media angle hasn't really gotten enough attention was developed by a fellow named evan mcmorris santoro writing for talking points. the losers are the arizona democrats. they wanted this issue to go away and obviously, obama administration was not consulting with them because they're all going to get wiped out in november because they look like they're stooges for the national liberals who are opposing a law that's very popular, not only in arizona, but around the country. >> i think that kirsten wants to jump in on that and i want to ask this question. jan brewer, governor in arizon
general david petraeus assuming command of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan. he's stepping into a place general stanley mcchrystal, you may recall, resigned following the controversial comments he made to "rolling stone" magazine and the general takes over what may be a critical time for the war. both behind the scenes and, on the front lines. connor powell streaming live from afghanistan with the latest. general david petraeus takes over this morning, any big changes expected immediately? >> well, eric, general petraeus now is about 150,000 u.s. and international troops here as part of the nato isaf effort here in afghanistan and he reiterated today what he said the past few days. there will be no major changes to the strategy and he backs the strategy general stanley mcchrystal put in place and, the general was part of designing the strategy, so, it is not surprising that he is not going to change it but he reiterated today, simply saying the leadership may change from time-to-time here, the strategy will stay the same, but, perhaps the greater challenge in addition to implementing th

you say? the u.s. national debt now at unsustainable levels. even the cbo says that. one democrat is suggesting a brand new plan. it's a new transaction tax that would impose a 1 percent fee on every single solitary financial transaction except for stocks. so whether you buy a couple of coffee or a brand new car, you're going to pay a little extra to the u.s. government, and even taking your own money out of your own bank account at an atm could cost you, that's right, 1 percent more under this new law. martha: this may sound strikingly similar to the vat tax used in england and other countries and it cost them a lot of money. is that what's coming here? stuart varney joins us, he's the anchor of varney & company on the fox business network. stuart, welcome, good to have you here. this idea was launched by a democratic congressman from pennsylvania and written about by lanny davis in an editorial. lanny davis worked wither skin bowles in the clinton administration. it raises the question are we starting to get the form from this debt commission, are they starting to float out ther
